Toughest Tree at Torridon



This tree has to be super tough. It is the only one around for miles

Re: Toughest Tree at Torridon

This is a 5D Mark II shot - very nice composition though.

Re: Toughest Tree at Torridon

Yes Ian, I posted this shot without thinking then wondered if this is allowed in this forum. Apologies if not and I will remove no problem.

Re: Toughest Tree at Torridon

My gripe with this shot was the foreground rock touching the background in the far distance.

Thanks for comments guys

Re: Toughest Tree at Torridon

My personal feeling is that we should all be grown up about this and appreciate photography above all. But it is true that this site is dedicated to Olympus so over-doing non-associate brands might not be a good idea

Re: Toughest Tree at Torridon

I wonder how many times that tree's been photographed. I think it's the one I shot nearly 3 decades ago.

Re: Toughest Tree at Torridon

It is a lovely shot, I would like to say I suffer with not being able to post my best shots here as they are taken with a N***n.

Unfortunately they are equally crap so it makes no difference.
